"Well, how long is it going to take?"

How many of us cringe to hear those words stated and restated over the course of a project or when any new functionality is being discussed?

All too often estimation is met with apprehension, trepidation, or downright disgust. It can be a touchy subject for both the developers making the estimates, as well as the project managers relying on them to set a timeline for stakeholders. It just so happens that there's a way that the risk associated with the question of "how long" can be mitigated, and even if you're not a developer, you have a role to play in demystifying this "black art". Join us for a 90 minute interactive session to better understand the purpose of estimation, and to explore approaches that can help you initiate efficient and accurate estimation practices.
